The Bikeability focus for the summer term was focussed on Year One pupils. The children showed amazing resilience, persevering to push themselves to balance, pedal and ride in a safe manner around the others.
Bikeability cycle training equips children with vital life skills. Pupils not only learn to cycle, they gain independence, social skills and a sense of wellbeing.
After Bikeability, children are better at responding to risk and report increased confidence. As a result, having engaged in the programme, more children cycle to school which in turn improves mental health and wellbeing. This allows children to get more out of the classroom, improving their attention span and engagement. Healthier habits lead to increased attendance and improved academic results.
Bikeability goes beyond a training course; it impacts children’s lives.
